I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You will work with the best people. Everywhere I have traveled with this company, I have found that the people are top quality - no matter if its at headquarters in California or a remote store somewhere. The pay on the retail side is very good for retail, and you get to work with some of the coolest products in the world.

Cons

Long hours. Oftentimes, overtime is the norm rather than the exception. You rarely get recognized for dedication and commitment. It sometimes feels as though you should be grateful you were let in the door, because, "This is Apple." Its not often, but it happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your people. Pay is nice, but an email or something even just saying you noticed how hard someone was working, or that you appreciate something they do can go a whole lot further than you think.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For a part time job there are great benefits, same as if you worked full time.

    Cons

    The only constant is change. Hire on as part time flex, which means during times of need you may work 50-60 hours/week.
